The Links vision
Links – International Journal of Socialist Renewal
-is a journal for the post Cold War left; a journal thatrejects the Stalinist distortion of the socialistproject; a journal that takes into account ecologicalquestions; a journal that is taking steps to bringtogether the forces for socialism in the world today;a journal that aspires to unite Marxists fromdifferent political traditions because it discussesopenly and constructively.
Inspired by the unfolding socialist revolution inVenezuela,
is also a journal for `Socialism of the 21st Century' and the discussions and debatesflowing from that powerful example of socialistrenewal.
seeks to promote the international exchangeof information, experiences of struggle, theoreticalanalysis and views on strategies and tactics withinthe international left.
is a forum for open and constructive dialoguebetween active socialists from different politicaltraditions. It seeks to bring together those in theinternational left opposed to neo-liberal economicand social policies, and to promote the renewal of the socialist movement in the wake of the collapseof the bureaucratic model of `actually existingsocialism’ in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.
is not oriented to academic Marxists, as manyexisting theoretical journals are, although it doeshave academics among its contributors. Its maincontributors and readers are active socialists; thoseinvolved in the day-to-day struggles and especiallyin the vital tasks of building organisations andparties.
does not present a single line. It is pluralist,open and very much a discussion forum. There is noregular editorial, but there are certain parameters setby an editorial board.
develops and marks out the space for genuinesocialism.It hopes to bring together active socialists fromdifferent countries and political viewpoints, butunited in our conviction of the need for:fundamental social change; a democratic, non-authoritarian socialism; and a socialism that's green,feminist and anti-racist.
carries discussion and debate pieces, solicitingoriginal articles from contributing editors andsupporting parties, and from anyone who wishes tocontribute constructively to the debates. It reprintsdocuments and discussion pieces from differentparties, as well as relevant articles from other journals.While an English-language journal, we also needinput from non-English-speaking countries, so that
